The Ghost Rider star is set to portray a fictionalized version of himself as a debt-ridden Cage, desperate to land a part in Quentin Tarantino’s next movie, only to find himself taking on a vastly different role as a real-life informant for the C.I.A. after agreeing to attend the birthday party of a Mexican super fan – a billionaire who is believed to be a drug cartel kingpin.
The Mandalorian’s Pedro Pascal has been cast as the superfan, while Tiffany Haddish will play a rogue government agent, and Catastrophe actress Sharon Horgan has boarded the project as Cage’s ex-wife.
Now Harris has also joined the fun as the actor’s agent.
Production on the film is already underway, with Tom Gormican directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with Kevin Etten.
The movie is currently scheduled for release in March (2021).
